Silverado North Golf Tournament Results
The second event of the Northern California APT season was contested on the Silverado North Course, site of the PGA Tour’s Fortinet Championship. Conditions were near perfect as light rain overnight softened up the course just enough to make the firm and fast greens reasonably receptive, the temperatures reached the low 60s and the wind stayed calm, it was a great day for golf.
Austin Krewson, with an even par (72), was our champion in Division 1. Austin’s solid -1(35) was good for a three-shot lead after the opening nine. Austin extended the lead to five after a solid birdie on the 15th, but a double bogie seven on the 16th would raise some doubts bringing Nick Mcclendon and Ron Yim to within three headed to the 17th tee. Austin would answer the call and make birdie on both 17 and 18 to close out the win. Austin took home a $200 visa gift card and barrel trophy. Nick Mcclendon +3(75) was our second-place finisher and was awarded $50 visa gift card for his effort.
Uti Ganaprakasam, with a +1(73), was our champion in Division 2. Uti’s solid even par (36) on the opening nine resulted in a four-shot lead over the opening nine of +4(40) by Billy Witt and Paul Ventimiglio. After bogies on 10 and 11, the lead would shrink to two. The lead would stay at two until 14 and 15 where Uti’s back-to-back birdies would extend the lead back to four. Completing the round with two pars and a bogie, Uti would close out the win. Securing his first victory on the APT tour, Uti took home a $230 visa gift card and barrel trophy.
